We were all surprised with the news that Buffy The Vampire Slayer will actually return to our screens at some point; although it would not feature it’s original cast. This week, the show’s new writer, Monica Owusu-Breen, tweeted to say that she would not try to replicate the original, because it simply could not be done.
And she has a point! But fans seem to think that her tweet hints that the series will not be so much of a reboot, (as you cannot recreate characters that already have such roots with their audience), but rather a sequel…

Here we are, twenty years later… And the world seems a lot scarier. So maybe, it could be time to meet a new Slayer….” Monica writes.
When the series ended, Willow had performed a spell that empowered every ‘potential’ slayer with the powers to become real slayers. Though we’re hoping the protagonist is none of those bitches from season 7 who couldn’t act, (sorry but season 7 was the WORST).
As a sequel, the writer’s open far more doors that a remake would and will face less criticism with regards to original comparisons, but as it will be attached to the original, it will have big expectations. Although after season 7 we really don’t see how this could flop any more.
BUT, the biggest questions here at C&C offices is, that if it’s a sequel, will any of the original cast be returning? We’re going to say YES! Not as series regulars, but you know OG slayer Sarah Michelle Gellar will pop-by for an episode or two, divulging her wisdom and shit.
